Intertronics Improves Efficiency of FIP Gaskets with New DYMAX UV Cure Material

Reading time ( words)

Engineering and fitting of effective sealing has often been a rather time-consuming and at times unsatisfactory business, frequently involving moulded or pre-punched gaskets, time-consuming installation of strip profiles or long waiting times while injected foams cure on stacked shelves. Now Intertronics, together with sales partner DYMAX, have announced the new GA-201 UV cure FIP gasket material which in large measure eliminates these problems.

GA-201 is designed for automated application with rapid – almost instant – UV cure so saving large amounts of time and handling of part-complete assemblies, thus speeding up process cycle times and releasing production floor space.

Robot application enables flexible, quick-change formation of complex 2D and 3D shapes without time constraints since the GA-201 remains uncured until UV is applied, at which point the process is completed in seconds enabling further assembly almost instantly.

DYMAX GA-201 is a tack free, moisture and chemical-resistant FIP/CIP gasket for sealing heat-sensitive substrates as an alternative to “O” rings, tapes, PSA die-cut gaskets, 2K epoxies, silicone rope, or RTV sealant. It is formulated for sealing plastic, glass, and metal enclosures, and plated surfaces for applications such as automotive door handles, appliance housings, critical electronic assemblies and devices.
